RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The Gecko Wall is a large cliff with twin arch features on the south side of the canyon where it forks. To descend from the top of the formation, go south a short ways then follow ramps and gullies west to the canyon floor. You can also continue over the top of the peak and down the east side on the most prominent ridge, avoiding the deep gullies.

Getting There 

Choose an approach from the Sandstone Canyon page then navigate to the center of the canyon.

The Golden Gecko 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Nevada : Red Rock : ... : Gecko Wall
Climb a slightly right leaning crack for two pitches to the head wall at the top of the arch where the crack bends left. Climb the crack through the head wall, crux. From here the route wanders up the face on easier ground with less pro. A couple of these pitches brings you to a low-angle, right facing crack/dihedral and take this to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Nevada
